FACE YOUR FEARS
After I had my disguise I began to act like a normal citizen again. I even went grocery shopping. My worst fear was still getting caught, what would happen to me? Would I just get put back into jail and serve my time, or would I be hanged? Only time would tell, so I guess I would have to wait and see.
My fear had arrived... I saw a policeman on the other side of the street, he looked like he had spotted me out and then he started chasing me, I ran as fast as I could. My lungs were going to burst, and then I could see a small, dark alleyway around the corner. If I was fast enough the policeman would lose me. A went for it.
I’m still in this dark place alone and I’ve lost that policeman, but they’ll be back to look for me, I know it. I’ll just have keep a low profile, and get a new disguise as well.
I haven’t written to you in a while, that’s because I have been trying to hide. They found me again. I am now in the town known as “Humblington”.
It’s quiet here, there aren’t many people either. Not at all like my hometown, Fremantle, or Fremantle Prison rather. I don’t like it here but it’s the only way I’ll be safe. So I guess this is my home for now.
I’ve been on the run but this time, they caught me. This will probably be the last time I write to you seeing how they are going to take me away to the noose (hanging rope). I never thought it would come to this, but… goodbye.
